Babbling Post-Modifier?

A compliment to be sure.

Speaking of "drifting", this one is certainly more than enjoyable: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ddn4MGaS3N4

I do believe we've passed this way before, but more than happy to go there again. Even watching him you wonder how the **** he does it. Have you checked Vicki Genfan?

No, never seen her before. Quite impressive, thanks for the rec

What the hell is this? Did you just take a non-music-related thread and hijack it into a music-related one? Knock it off.

Lovely stuff btw.

Larry, thanks for your email yesterday. Absolutely fascinating stuff. I'm struggling to finish off a book revise so can't say more than thank you for now. (So what am I doing here, you ask? Welll...)

Your most welcome, thank you for the interest. I feel your pain, currently editing two manuscripts for submission. So you could also question my presence here.

Maybe I could explain our presence here in two words:

comic relief.

(Well its hardly like to be for the high intellectual musical discourse is it...?)

In my case they are scientific research papers submitted to peer-reviewed journals. most of it would fall under the header of cancer research. As he mentioned yesterday, Rob writes non-fiction books for kids and young adults. I believe most are science-related.

likewise! Although I am not sure how i feel about another wordsmith around here. I already feel undue pressure to construct grammatically correct sentences. Actually if you read most of the gibberish i write, here you can tell the pressure is not that great or terribly effective.

Good editors are very nonjudgmental about other people's writing, when we're off duty :) We know that it is much easier to write garbled nonsense than decent prose and we enjoy the opportunity to write garbled nonsense ourselves and not be judged for it. that's what the internet's for.

Nice, when working Event Staff, dealing with crowd, HA free clinic, and local police there was no set guidelines after BGP.

It was like a free-for-all once it came to a fucked-up spectator, saving many folks from the newbie security machine by working with the elders.

I have seen and worked some crazy shows witnessing real trauma from an inexperienced workforce and sometimes it would require 5-10 clinic volunteers to combat law enforcement for one heavily dosed individual.

Maybe you could create or revise such documentation protecting us on either side of the fence.

I'm sorry, but are you writing to a bunch of Deadheads and complaining about straying off topic? Let us remember the limited attention span of many of those veterans of the touring days. Short term memory issues persist with many of those here, and then there are small shiney objects that are so fascinating, And who can think of ( pick Dead song here ) without being reminded of that girl from college? You know, there was this one girl at a Dead show who was just a vision of beauty floating around the concourse...wait, did they just start Mexicali? I'm gonna go pee...
